Baseball Season is back!

Baseball Season is BACK!
On Monday night Colt had his first practice with the Braves.  He did awesome.  He caught some great catches and hit some great hits.  He's so much fun to watch and an old pro at this!

 Tonight, after 5 seasons of sitting on the side lines cheering on his brother, Chase had his very first tball practice.  He is so excited to be an Astro and to have Braxton, one of his best buddies, on his team and have his daddy help coach.  On the way to practice, he said, "Mom, do you think we will have a water break!?!?!"  I guess he was excited to use his new water bottle.  I was so proud of him the whole practice.  He went right out on the field with the Coach and followed directions and listened so well.  What the coach doesn't know is he's ready for this!  He's watched a lot of baseball!!!!

Bye Bye Gym!

Today was Chases last day of gym class.  After two years, many coaches, many learned skills we said bye! 
It was bitter sweet.  We've both enjoyed it so much but we're on to new adventures.   We have such great memories of Cypress Academy! 

 FIRST DAY -February  2014
LAST DAY -End of January 2016

"Take a picture, and send it to me!!!"

A while back, Chases thing was, "I love this song!  Tell Daddy I wanna go see him (singer) and to put it on my iPad!"  He said it for EVERY SINGLE song on the radio.  
It got old.  
It passed.

Now, we have something new. If I, or anyone, takes a picture, he screams, "send that to me!!!".  He's    instant we send EVERY SINGLE picture to him.  No matter what the picture.  During Christmas Chapel practice the whole group of kids was up on stage singing away.  I snapped a few pictures, he screamed "Send that to me!  Ok?  Mom, Send that to me!" If we snap a picture outside, he'll run up to me and tell me to send it to him. 
Now, he's start finding random things he wants a picture of.  For example, 
this leaf...  
 Or this rose petal...
 Or, this string on his sleeve!
And, he wants all of them sent to him! 

He's even started asking his teacher to take pictures and send them to me during class.  
It's out of control!

Try Outs and a Cook Off

Today was a busy day!  Colt and I woke up bright and early and headed out toe the ball fields for tryouts.  It was quite chilly but a beautiful morning.  I am so so so proud of Colt.  He really showed all of the coaches how great he is! 

After Tryouts we came home and got a few things ready and headed out to Burton Tx where we joined up with Zak at the La Bahia Cook-off.  It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed hanging out with everyone.  The boys did pretty well.  They placed first in Margaritas and 10th in Brisket (Out of about 29 teams).  Zak ribs were amazing as usual!

Today, Zak was A Watch DOGS at Colt's school.  Colton could hardly hide his excitement. He's been waiting for this day since the day Zak was a Watch DOGS last year! 
They both had a great day.  Zak said one of the kindergarten substitute teachers told him he was being too wild with the kids at recess. LOL! He said he had fun but the kids wore him out! 

I'm so thankful that my kids have a dad like Zak!  We're all so lucky!!!!

Today, Colt had the day off of school.  It was beautiful out so we loaded up the bikes and went for bike rides at the park with Grandad.  It was so beautiful, we didn't want to stop so we ran and picked up Nanny and lunch and had a picnic and continued to ride!

Feeding Pigs

Last night Ericka and KK invited the kids to go over to the barn to help feed and take care of Ericka's pigs.  The boys loved it!  Well, Colt did.  I heard Chase had a few tears.
